ColourQ 29


Tuesdays are  wonderful days, because it’s ColourQ day!!!  This week Arielle has chosen this bright, cheerful palette:


Wouldn’t you like to wake up every morning with some coffee in a cup like this?  As usual, I had an idea in my head that refused to transfer to paper, and when I finally finished my card, I had to laugh…..there are SO many cards this week using this layout and stamp set!  The Clean & Simple girls must be thrilled, because EVERYBODY has been using this fun layout:


And here’s my take on it:


I used Circle Circus in the various colors, as well as the new Itty  Bitty Bits from the upcoming Summer mini catalog….see those tiny little flowers?  CUTE!!!  I added some bling to the various elements, a piece of JUMBO rickrack and used a retired SU sentiment as I don’t seem to have any current sentiments that fit in a circle!!  Isn’t that textured panel cool?  That’s a new EF from SU called Square Lattice…so cool; the reverse pattern is just as neat!!  And here’s the inside; I used a punched–out piece of cardstock “donut” that I was going to toss in the trash, to make an interesting element along the edge of the card:


So thanks for visiting, and be sure to check out what the other CQC designers made today---just click on the blinkie on the side there to be taken to the CQC blog!  And after seeing them, you’ll want to play too!!!
